Franke Industries started the activities in Space
Franke Industries started the activities in Space in a Co-Development project with the predecessor organization of Arianegroup. The goal was to establish the Nozzle Extension connected to the AESTUS Engine Ariane 5 upper stage.
The solution was created on the application of a Cobalt-Based Alloy. Our Know-How in forming (rolling and expanding) combined with TIG welding, NonDestructive Testing and machining made the task to a successful story.
Special Acoustic Absorber in Aluminum were developed in close collaboration with RUAG Space and installed for a long period in the payload fairing Ariane 5.
Franke Industrie AG participates in R&D Projects with Arianegroup and Fraunhofer Institute: Special High Heat Resistant components for Space application.
